Team Iowa will look to continue their strong success at the National Duals, as the Junior squad will follow a Cadet team which took seventh a few weeks ago. The Schoolboy squad also had a good tournament taking home 13th.
The team is loaded with both state and nationally ranked talent, with 2015 top 100 commits Nolan Hellickson (Harvard) and Cash Wilcke (Iowa) leading the way. Additional seniors with Division I wrestling futures include Tanner Rohweder, Paul Glynn, Aaron Meyer, Cole Erickson, Dale Hilleman, Keegan Shaw, and Alex Silberstein.
In addition to the highly talented senior group, the junior class will be sending four wrestlers who were recently put on InterMat’s top 100 list. Carter Happel, Carter Isley, and Brock Rathbun will be heading to the National Duals, as will the talented Ethan Andersen, who is committed to Missouri.
After having a solid Cadet tournaments , Kyle Biscoglia and Gable Fox will be competing in the Junior duals as well. Both Biscoglia and Fox went undefeated in freestyle, with Biscoglia going 9-0 and Fox going 8-0.
This team is loaded with talent, beyond what was even mentioned above, and it should be a great weekend. Action gets underway this week starting this Wednesday in Oklahoma City starting with Greco-Roman, and freestyle getting underway on Friday. Action can be watching on Flowrestling.
